Disinformation Strategies and Tactics: distracting hearsay amidst fleeting visions of truth - what it looks like and what can be done.

My notes yesterday's Internet Freedom Festival community knowledge share: schmud.de/posts/2020-05-29-dis (cc: @info_activism)

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

In "Array languages for Clojurians," Dave Liepmann looks at APL and its descendants - reimplementing details along the way. The historical context enriches the read and puts the concepts within reach of mere mortals such as myself. appliedscience.studio/articles

The problem of climate change is profound. I look at Bret Victor's suggestion of model-driven discourse and the internet's impact on our "network of causes and conditions."

Today's post is a bit of a deep dive into the new Apple/Google COVID-19 exposure notifications. I look at how they work and if they're going to be effective.

So once again government incompetence has cut off funding for my dream gig (it was a nice... few months, anyway) and I'm adrift in the covid economy.

If you have a line on work involving: Audio Mixing, Audio Programming, Multimedia manipulation or programming in general, or a general Python / Rust gig, I would really, really appreciate it.

In the meantime, I have albums available for sale here:

I also take music commissions.

Lisp, RMS 

robertstrandh: When RMS announced GNU Emacs, I wrote to him saying something like "It would be better to first write a Lisp system that compiles to native code and then write Emacs in it" (since I already knew about Multics Emacs). He wrote an answer "Sounds good! Let me know when you have implemented it". πŸ˜Ήβ€‹πŸ˜Ήβ€‹πŸ˜Ήβ€‹
